Very nice boots. This will be the third week of wear,almost have them broke in. The only thing I wished they had is a loop at the back of the boot to pull them up.

Very well made boots! I have been wearing them for about a week now. Definitely the worst break in period I've ever dealt with but they are loosening up and I think will become the most comfortable boots I've owned.

These are my first pair of Red Wings and they've quickly become my favorite boots. I've had them for about 5 months and I end up wearing them 5-6 days a week. I purchased these because they are supposed to run narrow and I have a narrow foot. They are perhaps a little narrower than most medium width but they're still wide for me. They also run true to size. I typically wear a size 11 in boots (IE: Chippewa, Thorogood)and these in 11 fit just right. They do require break-in. For me the foot bed was comfortable from the start. Even though it starts as a flat piece of leather, it has enough give in the beginning to be comfortable. It took about 3 weeks for the foot bed to start to mold to my feet. Now they just keep getting more comfortable. The upper leather (Briar Oil Slick) is thick but pliable. I did wear one blister in the first week when walking downhill. The leather was well oiled when I received these and all I've done so far is brush them off every now and then. I have not needed to treat the leather yet. Typically, over-treating leather boots will make them wear out quicker so I typically only treat my boots once or twice a year depending on how they feel. These have held up really well. I only have a few negatives. I don't really like the look of the white sole. I would prefer something darker but they are really comfortable and quiet when walking on a hard floor. They also grip well for my needs. These boots are also not great for walking on slopes. Because the foot bed is smooth leather my feet tend to move back and forth a lot when walking either downhill or on a cross slope. If my feet were wider this might not be an issue. They're fine on flat ground. These are easily the most expensive shoes / boots I've ever purchased. But they are extremely well made and comfortable. I love the way they mold to my feet.

The most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. My foreign made size is 13 but had to go a 12 in the Heritage line.

I finally found a comfortable Chukka. These are very similar in feel to the Chippewa's that I have and like as well.

I definitely had to go a 1/2 size down from my regular shoe size. My feet have plenty of room even though I did go 1/2 size down. Boots a very well made and will need sometime to break in which is what I expected. These do not have a squishy inner sole but have a regular boot foot bed.

As recommended, I sized down one size. Big mistake. I am a 10.5 and ordered a 9.5. Way to small. Blisters galore even after a month of wear. Otherwise, this is a great shoe.

I've been wearing Red Wing Heritage boots for years. This is my second pair of this particular model, I decided to opt for the "wide" versions this time and they fit much better. My feet are by no means wide, I think the boot runs very narrow. They also run large, I wear a size 9.5 in almost every shoe/boot and I wear a 8.5 in the Heritage line. Other than that, they are very well made (in the USA) of the best materials.

Size down a half size. Give yourself some time to break in the shoes. I would buy these again. Great quality leather. Simple, form fitting, and comfortable.

Let me start by saying that I love the comfort that Red Wing provides. This model is my 2nd pair from heritage line and first using the classic Red Wing wedge sole. I ordered these in mid January of 2016 and here I am in mid June contemplating on getting them resoled. The best part is I work in a office setting. I choose Red Wing for comfort and because I can wear them with jeans or slacks. Never did I think I would need new soles before the 1 year mark! Has their sole supplier gone downhill?

Order at least a half size smaller than usual. I usually wear a 10, sometimes 9 1/2 depending on the shoe. In these I wound up with a 9 after ordering 4 different sizes. Easy return through Zappos though. But the other reviews about the size are correct. That said, they are great boots. I have not had them for long, but they are breaking in very quickly. I have a friend who has owned them for years and says they get more and more comfortable over time, and I have no problem believing that.

Redwing's are one of best boots made...durable, comfortable although I wish they'd add a soft insert, stylishly vintage, and can be worn for work or casually. They're awesome boots. My only complaint is that I got the smooth sole. They are useless on ice and snow here in Wisconsin but the trade off is I don't pick up mud or farm manure around the farm in the summer time.

I bought mine directly from Red Wing's website since Zappos doesn't have the color that I want. My first Red Wing was a Beckman I bought 3 years ago. I got this boots on a Thursday. I wore them in the house for about 2 hours. It was uncomfortable and I was thinking of sending it back the coming Saturday. Friday night when I got home, I wore it again inside the house for another 2 hours. It got a little bit better that On Saturday, I decided to keep it. I wore it for at least 6 hours inside the house on Saturday. I wore this boots to work from Monday to Friday. It is now feeling a lot, lot better than a week ago. For those guys saying that this is a stiff, uncomfortable pair of boots, give it a chance to break in. You'll definitely love it after a week or so.

Very good quality, but it would take a year just to break them is. The insole consists of rock hard leather, not even a comfort insole. The shoes seem to make my feet pronate and slide to the inside. They are not comfortable at all and the laces were cheap and weak. I think the shoes would last forever, but not for me. They are too hard and stiff. I had to return them.

Having read many reviews on these boots that said buy half a size down. Not for me. I wear from a 8 to 8.5. So I got them in a 8. Bottom line I needed a 8.5. Same heel slip. But they feel comfy. Yes, they need to be broken in. They feel good on my feet at this size. So for me a larger size was needed (8.5). So if they do not feel good on your feet when you get them, get a different size. Great fit and finish on these boots. They look and feel like they will last a lifetime.

This is definitely a quality product. The materials and construction are premier. The boots felt sturdy yet comfortable right out of the box. Having said that, there is still a break-in period; probably about a week of constant wear. But this is to expected and it is not a negative, rather typical of high-quality strong boots. I am a type 1 diabetic, which means my feet can be sensitive and require extra vigilant protection. The Beckman boot works perfectly for me. I also own a pair of Alden Indy boots and I think that the Beckman's are in some ways better. They are lighter, sturdier, and require a shorter break-in period! Everyone's feet are different, so not every pair of footwear will work for all. But for most people, I believe these boots will be received with much appreciation. Thank you Red Wing for making a quality product in the good ole' USA! And what can be said about Zappos other than superb on all accounts.

First off I can't say enough about Zappos' quality service.I ordered a pair of boots on a Wednesday they arrived Thursday. Too big, I returned them at a UPS pick-up location, and had my new boots that fit right on Friday- awesome! Zappos has definitely the best customer service I ever had the pleasure of dealing with in online retail. Now onto the boots. Red Wing make a quality product, and if you're willing to spend the extra bucks it is absolutely worth purchasing something from their Heritage Collection; they exude quality. They only use the best most premium leathers tanned at one of the oldest and only remaining tanneries in the United States. However, the boots and shoes from this collection do take time to break in. I've owned my #8111's for two weeks now, and they get more comfortable with each passing day, and I do wear them everyday at least 8 hours a day. Red Wing boots do run about a size, or at least a half size long, and they do run a tad narrow, so if you do have wide feet you may need to size up. These boots are so nice I plan to buy another pair from their Heritage Collection soon.

No doubt these are extremely high quality boots. Great leather and stitching. Takes awhile to break in but that's how most long lasting items are. Not exactly as comfortable as others make them out to be but to each his own. Definitely worth the money. These were my first pair of Moc toes so the weight of the boot was something new to me but you definitely get use to it after awhile. Sizing down varies also. I ended up sizing down 1.5 so don't fret if it takes you awhile to find the perfect fit because it took me 3 tries. If you are lucky to have a local Red Wing shop check them out so they can properly get you fitted. These are also definitely waterproof but the one negative thing about these boots is the tread of the soles wear down pretty quickly. I ended up getting a vibram sole when they needed resoled and it definitely made a huge difference in regards to grip but like I stated earlier to each his own. Red Wing also does a great job of showing unions love. Also try to oil/condition your boots once a month and they will last for years. If you're on the fence, go ahead and order a pair and see if you like them or not. Zappos has the best customer service and return policies so you can't go wrong going through Zappos for your online purchases. Just don't get discouraged at how uncomfortable they are at first. Hope this helps!

My first pair of Red Wing Irish Setters were purchased from a Red Wing store in 1985. Three times they have been resoled and repaired by Red Wing. Not bad for 30 plus years of hunting, hiking, construction and landscape work. Over the years they have become like ballet slippers. So conditioned to my feet I can, and often do, dance in them. Alas the leather is finally cracking apart and I fear they are almost played out. Did not think I could get another resoling out of them so purchased a new pair. Still great boots but as mentioned in many reviews, the sizing has apparently changed. The new pair, which has the exact same sizing as my old, fits a half size larger. This for a work / hunting boot is very important. All said I would still invest in another pair of these boots. With proper care they will become like an old friend you can always count on.

So far so good. If you don't plan on putting an extra insole, then you would need to size down at least a half size. I originally bought a size 11 (usual size) but was too big. I returned it and exchanged it for a 10 1/2 and fits perfect.
